Bendt and Wize Dezigns received the award due to her commitment and Web site involvement in the organization.

Member comments include: "Angie donates a lot of time to the association and gives us an excellent price on services she provides. Without her we would pay a lot more for what we get. She has worked so hard for the group and on the Web site, which looks great and is easy to get through. Angie chairs an important committee and maintains the Web site, passionately promotes HBA and ensures Web site/online presence is professional."
